So after seeing this nifty footage of a tremoctopus (type of octopus that developed the 'webbing' between the tentacles such that it makes a large sail-like affair) on molluscious, the first thing that struck me?

And to give an idea of translating what folks saw to how the pictures ended up back in the day, here's a "walrus". So adding little hands and feet were an understandable error.
